Revolution

Let there be no peace

so long as there are those who whine over the feast

without seeing their neighbors praying over an empty table.

 

Let there be no peace

so long as there are those who declare war for sport

without noticing the casualties or embracing the wounded.

 

Let there be no peace

so long as those who enjoy the comforts of power

never have to meet the disempowered or house the dislocated.

 

Let there be no peace

so long as those who buy and sell the normative rat race

undermine the life-saving dance of revolution and communion.

 

Let there be no peace

so long as the soothsayers equate salvation with security

without naming the need for atonement and equity in renewal.

 

Let there be no peace.

 

Micah 3:5-7
